“Ok for the price, overall good.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013

I am more of a fan of Hiltons and Marriotts, but we stayed here this time. It is a bit out of the way, looks like they tried to build up this area, and it hasn't worked out too well. You can't really walk to anything, but it is just a very short drive to get to restaurants, Broadway on the Beach, the mall, ect. It was very clean, I would compare it to a skimped down Residence Inn, but you get what you pay for, and if you want that, you will pay at least 50% more. If you want something very affordable and decent size, this is great. Even though the area doesn't have much, you will feel very safe at this hotel. In the evening, they have a manager's reception, the food was eh, but it was free, they had hotdogs (the kids enjoyed those), and veggies and chips. The veggies weren't that great, but they also have sodas and water for the kids and beer and wine for the adults, free of charge. I was impressed with teh breakfast spread, they had a lot of choices, no sous chef or anything like that, but delicious grits, bagels, ect. They also have waffles you can make and eggs, ect. Overall, the place was fine if you are looking for an affordable place. Clean and safe.

We have stayed at Sonesta ES Suites (formerly Staybridge Suites) several times and have never been disappointed. The staff is always friendly, informative and cooperative. The rooms have never been anything but fresh and clean. Even in the "pet rooms". We've always gotten a room in the area of the hotel we requested. Mr. Reis, General Manager, is certainly doing something right. A special shout out to Marty, the Breakfast Attendant, who always made sure people were full and taken care prior to closing the breakfast bar. We will return. Again!

Room Tip: If you have a pet ask to be put in the rear close to the dog walk. This is a quiet area and close to...

During our stay, my husband and I were very impressed by how clean the room was for the price. The room was very clean, modern, and comfortable. At first glance, the area (not the hotel) isn't very appealing, as it is adjacent to a closed-down theme park. However, the scenery actually added to the stay. The area around the hotel isn't "run-down" - more like "closed-down". It's not located on the beach, but it's very close to shopping, entertainment, public beach access, etc. There was a very nice continental breakfast, with a large variety of food - most of which were name brand. We'd definitely stay here again.

I stayed here and was quite impressed. Rooms very comfortable and free breakfast had a variety of offerings. The staff was quite friendly. The location is not on the beach, but close enough and well worth the difference in price.

Overall the stay was quite nice, breakfast was much better than expected. To get a higher rating they need to:
1. Upgrade their TVs to HD flat screens - All the TVs in the suite were old analog CRTs.
2. Include an oven in the "Full Kitchen."

We booked a 2 bedroom suite for 3 nights to attend a hotel at the beach. The condition of the room was ok. The carpets are dirty and really need to be cleaned. Be sure to always wear shoes; other than that the rooms are pretty decent. The breakfast is great and offers a pretty good variety of choices. The pool area is nice with tables, lounge chairs, and umbrellas. They also have a basketball court by the pool. The area surrounding the hotel is deserted, but you pretty close to everything. The mall is only 5 minutes away in one direction and the outlets are 10 minutes away in the other direction. Beach only about 10 minutes. Good location if you want to be a in a central location. If you are looking to book a good hotel at a great price this would be the spot!

The hotel was nice, but it is located in an area that is a "ghost town". Most stores, restaurants, etc. around the area are closed down. The room was nice, the continental breakfast was very nice, but there were so many kids and teenagers, running and yelling down the hall most of the night. I'm not sure where the parents were. We cancelled our reservations for the remainder of the week and moved to another hotel.
